I Believe (Frankie Laine song)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"I Believe"
Song
Written1953
Songwriter(s)

"I Believe" is a popular song written by Ervin Drake, Irvin Graham, Jimmy Shirl and Al Stillman in 1953.

"I Believe" was commissioned and introduced by Jane Froman on her television show, and became the first hit song ever introduced on TV. Froman, troubled by the uprising of the Korean War in 1952 so soon after World War II, asked Drake, Graham, Shirl and Stillman to compose a song that would offer hope and faith to the populace.[1] Froman's commercial recording reached No. 11 in the Billboard charts during a 10-week stay. [2] "I Believe" has been recorded by many others, and has become both a popular and religious standard.

Frankie Laine's version spent eighteen non-consecutive weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart.[3] Laine also had the most successful version in the USA, where he reached #2 for three weeks. [4]
